Whoo hoo!!! The dress is done! And shockingly without any horrific mishaps that usually hover like a spector of doom and despair around my projects. I'm kind of scared. I didn't have to adjust or alter the pattern one bit and that is seriously unusual for me. BUT, this is a happy event, because this means I can make more of this dress without any of the usual hair pulling that often times accompanies my projects!
On to the dress-rehearsal pictures!! (The pics of me wearing the dress were taken before I made the sleeve supports, so the sleeves look like sad, deflating balloons...)
Note to self: Get a new camera that doesn't make fabric look washed out....
I cannot believe the enormity of the sleeves and bonnet!!! I acutally look like I have a small head! Which I DON'T!!!!
My Mrs. Universe pose!! Look at those "muscles"!! hahahahahaha!!!!
Miss Rosie had to get in the picture. She does after all match the outfit!! Isn't she so sweet?
Ok! So, I found on eBay from England this fabulous lace pelerine and my Mama bought it for me for a birthday gift!! It is gorgeous and I may be wearing it instead of the chemisette I originally planned on wearing with the dress....hhhmmm.....Oh yes! Sleeve supports have been added so the sleeves puff out correctly!
Love how the pelerine looks with this dress...
Dress with the chemisette...love this look as well...
Close up of bodice with chemisette...now the decision of what collar to wear!!!
Next post will be about the accessories I have for this outfit!! I am so excited to wear it!!
Be blessed my friends!
